Whether you’re stressed, sad or lonely, I’m of the mind that there’s nothing a good book can’t fix. It thus follows that ownership of a lazy reading chair is a healthcare essential. A form of medicine, if you will. And that makes the process of choosing the perfect one all the more important.
Do you prefer a reading chair which sits plush and plump? The kind you can sink deliciously in to while wrapped in a knitted throw? Or perhaps you like something a little more structured? Firm and robust, with a minimalist aesthetic? There’s no one size fits all when it comes to the perfect reading chair. The only two criteria that matter are style and comfort, and each pick in this round up balances both with a designer flair. Keep scrolling for more.
Lazy Reading Chairs We Love
Plush in Pink
Millennial pink is the trend which just won’t quit, and that is more than alright with me. The saccharine hue adds a quirky twist to this sweet reading chair, yet its neutral undertones ensures all round versatility.
Ahead of the Curve
Made from laminated lacquered wood, with a leather cushion and swivel base, this lounge chair embodies the very best of minimalist Nordic design. Simply add a (faux) fur blanket to get that hygge look down on lock.
Come to Rest
As lazy reading chairs go, this pick looks almost bean bag-like with its plump, pillowy cushions. Yet thanks to its unique metal tubular frame, the Marenco offers plenty of support and stability.
Bask In Glory
Taking design cues from Michael Thonet’s Parisian brasserie chair, this piece oozes easy charm. The curves add a little something extra to the chair’s silhouette, while the natural flaxen tones keep the overall look light despite the heavy wood accents.
In Sheep’s Clothing
The secret to understated chic? It’s all about balance. Case in point – the Inheritance Armchair.
Here, a polished brass frame finish is the ideal minimalist antidote to the luxuriously soft white Mongolian sheepskin upholstery. A matching ottoman ensures optimum comfort for those bookworms in for the long haul.
Fly the Nest
Physically and mentally hide away from the world thanks to the privacy offered by the Nest Lounge Chair’s statement dome.
The distinctive shell detail elevates this simple reading chair to a statement-worthy design piece. Finished in black eggshell, this lounge chair is all kinds of smart.
